The author of The Hunger Games is Suzanne Collins. She is an amazing author and has many, many books. Some of her books are Gregor the Overlander, Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane, Gregor and the Marks of Secret. That is another series of course. But she has many other books than that. She is very well known for her best selling series The Underland Chronicles as well as The Hunger Games. So far my favorite book of hers is The Hunger Games. (Mostly because that is the only book that I have read that's hers).
